    I see alot compared to the Milwaukee for brushless and battery life and more 12v versatility in tools but if we are really comparing DeWalt and Milwaukee the big for the 12v class on drill drivers was because of the 1/2" Chuck . Does the new 12v DeWalt also have the 1/2" Chuck??? (Milwaukee fan)

    Been electrician for 20 years.... dewalt has dominated with power and robustness, even through the 18v lithium flop

    I love the dewalt led light on that new tool, almost as cool as the full led ring like on the ingersoll rand cordless always made me feel like I should be working on spaceships and i love it

    I would choose Makita 12 v way before DeWalt...I'm a Milwaukee guy through and through but there's only one brand I don't fk wit when it comes to cordless tools and that's DeWalt. Their warranty service is shit and you are going to use it when it comes to their cordless. DeWalt saws(table, miter) are great but go with their cordless at your own risk

    • DougE
      DougE Month ago

      I have a DeWalt saw, Ryobi cordless nailers, Hercules miter, Makita and Milwaukee cordless, and some others mixed in. This is not just coming from some Red fanboy so don't get it twisted

    Milwaukee is geared more toward technicians, DeWalt is geared towards builders and Carpenters.

    I have nearly every 20v tool dewalt makes, but they lost me when they abandoned the 12v line. I was looking to gather a cheap set for the work truck and didn't need huge 20v stuff (comercial kitchen repair/generator repair) so I bought into the m12 pretty heavy and I think im just gonna stay there and start replacing 20v with m18 as they break

    From a tool for tool standpoint both are really great tool lines. It just comes down to user preference. I had dewalt for years and loved it. It all got stolen, so I looked at the available tools in each line and went with Milwaukee a couple years ago. I love them now as well. But I don't think anyone who's used multiple tools from both lines can honestly say that one line is better. Some Dewalt tool are better than the equivalent Milwaukee and vice versa. They all get the job done. I'm personally glad to see more competition. It makes them all better and cheaper.

    Milwaukee fan boys make it tuff to join team red. Talking about the guys that come on to job sites with the Milwaukee packout, Milwaukee impact, Milwaukee hat and shirt, milwaukee pencils, markers and milwaukee trash bags. They friggen drive me nutts. But for 12 v tools they are the New England Patriots right now. Kinda hard to bet against them. So thank the Lord for the 18v and bigger hilti line. But Milwaukee has crushed the 12v class. Well done.

    Why are you comparing an automotive focused M12 impact WRENCH with double the torque of the DeWalt 12v impact DRIVER.....!? of course the M12 is gonna be bigger, it's double the balls!!! The M12 fuel driver on the left is the one you should compare the DeWalt to if you want to compare apples to apples and size

    • Mike Morgan

      I noticed that too. Since they didn't go into any specs and just raved about how much they love slide packs and skinny grips I have to assume they got a package from Dewalt and in return they threw them a bone with this "review"? On the other hand, I'm sure the Lowes folks are pissed that they keep mentioning Home Depot first. I really like these guys, and I think they are straight shooters, so not mentioning specs kept them from having to be blatantly dishonest. Or maybe I'm just jaded from all the paid shills on youtube who ooo and ahhh over every craptacular POS that arrives on their doorstep.

    Love both, if dewalt made everything that milwaukee does then I would definitely buy only dewalt. More comfortable, less vibration in the hand, faster, and better quality in some tools. Milwaukee just has so much fucking tools witch makes it super convenient.

  • Wild Goose

    I actually like the Milwaukee M12 grip better. I know that is not typical, but it feels right in my hand. Maybe it's muscle memory at this point. Unfortunately for Dewalt, there is no comparison in the 12v line. If you are going to buy 12v, you probably don't choose Dewalt as they have an extremely limited 12v line. Oh, and TOOL FIGHT!

    • Wild Goose

      @Mike Morgan agree 100%

    • Mike Morgan
      Mike Morgan Month ago +1

      Yeah, I've used both and have big hands. I love the M12 grips. I think youtube must have a lot of tool reviewers with small hands, because I see it a lot, but it's a complete non issue for me. I REALLY like the M12 3ah compact batteries too. Makes the tools much more compact and easier to maneuver in tight spaces. I have a LOT of M18 and M12 tools, but I always seem to reach for the M12 first unless I really need big power. So most of my M18 stuff has very few hours on it. I'm getting the M12 die grinders and multi head installation drill driver when they come out as well. Dewalt, Makita, Bosch, Hitach Metabo ALL make solid tools too. The variety of available tools is what tipped the balance for me choosing Milwaukee.

    I'm a DeWalt guy, BUT check that breaking torque between the wrenches. I'd bet Milwaukee is 50% or higher over DeWalt.

    Milwaukee is king in 12v. A battery platform is only as good as its line up. Even if dewalt has a lot more power, it is only 3-6 tools. Milwaukee covers everything and everyone.

  • 4thewin
    4thewin Month ago

    milwaukee has better tool lineup for 12v, but will definitely need more warranty work. Where as dewalt is tough, and needs less warranty work. It's pretty rare, that anyone is truly only in one platform. Most of the people I see, know, or have met are usually in more than one line up. You're only shooting yourself in the foot by being brand loyal fan boy/girl.

  • Trevor Phillips

    With only a handful of 12v tools, they already lost. Milwaukee 12v already have like 50 tools out. DeWalt already gave up on 12v once. What makes you think they won't give up again on it?
    Wasn't the atomic line supposed to replace the 12v? It's like they're throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks.

    Bought my first 20v combo in 2013. Since then the drill broke, so then I got the gen 2 Milwaukee 12v combo. I use both platforms. I just bought an M18 sander kit this week. I now have three cordless platforms. Very happy with all.

    Both brands have never let me down. However Milwaukee is the way to go because they are usually priced very well around Black Friday and the battery style hasn’t changed in forever so you can get more distance out of your tools.

  • Tools-cars- Guitars

    Milwaukee is better. Dan you kept saying how short the dewalt is but when you held it up the Milwaukee was shorter but the dewalt was not as wide.

    I was very excited to see DeWalt come out with the new 12v max. I'd love to see other tools in that line up in the future. I'm not going to hold my breath or anything but it would be awesome.

    It is super funny that they mention that Milwaukee is tailored for the trades and then say electrician. The three tools that I use the most often that are not drills or impacts, flashlights, oscillating multi tool and lasers.
    Flashlights; best in the industry my hardhat light is a Milwaukee light
    OMT; is arguably the worst 12v OMT offered
    Laser; 🤷🏼‍♂️
    Say I’m working on high rise and my Hilti sleeve has become damaged or wasn’t installed let me grab my M12 ground penetrating radar, oh wait they don’t have that either...
    Would I like a Bosch or Hilti 12v mini bandsaw? YES! Is it a deal breaker? No

    Milwaukee just has to make more fuel m12 stuff. Such as jigsaw and circular saw and a couple others that are long over due. The m12 stubby does 250ftlb im sure that Dewalt isn’t anywhere near 250😂

    I do believe you guys are a bit of corpo shills but this video actually had some useful insight. More videos like this that touch on the negatives as well as the positives. E.g. the Milwaukee handle does suck a bit, but Dewalt doesn’t have a massive 12v line.

    Both, I started with DeWalt 20V because it could charge 12V's as well, but there 12V went no where, have a few key tools, but switched to M12 due to the amount of tools, then just recently got into the M18 so I think I have all my basis covered, these Dewalt 12V's are nice and might pick some up depending on pricing and sales.

  • Joe Framer

    For 12v tools.. M12 has a big line and powerful but Bosch has 12v tools Milwaukee does not and the Bosh tools are higher quality.. M12 for auto is the best. ..
    ....... Milwaukee is still for plumbers, HVAC, and auto... For construction, building nothing beats flexvolt , not even close..

    RICH REVIEWS Month ago +2

    I state it time and time again Milwaukee is simply the best power tools on the market whether it be 12 V or 18.... just picking them up tells you they are heavy duty you don’t even need to start it up to realize this....They are in a class all by them selves

    I think Milwaukee make good products but I just dont like how everything in the lineup is red. I know the color of a tool doesn't effects the performance in any way but if I'm going to be using it & have to look at it for hours I would perfer any other color than red

  • Eoghan Fla

    When I was choosing a brand it was between Milwaukee and metabo. Dewalt never even came into it. I decided Milwaukee based on their batteries. I’m glad I did now just for the pure choice. I think they have over 200 tools between m12 and m18. That all said the better dewalt become and the more options they provide the better milwaukee will become. Having one dominant player is not good for us the consumer so even though I wouldn’t buy dewalt I hope the keep innovating.
    And just on point. I’d own Chevy and Ford..!

    What are your thoughts on the 20v for both of these? I got a home warming gift for the $599 dewalt 5 tool kid 20v but before I open it I want to do some research and see. So what do you guys think? I'm just a weekend warrior. Let me know what you think
